 A THRONE OF BONES Episode 8: Ride to Death


Meanwhile, whomever bought Tapas is clearly seeking to converge it completely, as they've hired a DC/Vertigo editor as their new editor-in-chief. Vertigo, of course, was the complete disaster that featured, among other things, a comic series written by Literally Who.
Celebrated creator and Eisner-winning editor Jamie S. Rich will be joining Tapas Media, Inc., the leading digital publisher of webcomics and novels, as Editor in Chief from Monday, June 21. The former DC Comics editor will lead a diverse and talented team from both traditional comics and webcomics while overseeing content creation as Tapas continues to grow and focus on IP development. 

In 2015, Rich joined DC Comics as part of their Vertigo imprint....

The attention to detail in the latest AToB episode 8 was impressive: no stirrups & an overhand pilum grip.

I would love table-top strategy game in this art style. Super cool.

And the enemies of the SDL continue to destroy themselves.

Btw, VD, in case you are interested, I caught an excellent movie over the weekend called "The Unholy."

This movie was released on Easter and I initially dismissed it as akin to the "Black Christmas" movies that Hellmouth typically releases on Christian holidays.

Was I wrong.

This is the type of movie Arkhaven would make given time. Basically, the movie has a "Vox Day" understanding of how evil operates.

I cant wait for the last battle to be drawn. IIRC, That last battle when I thought Marcus was doing so well and having the rug pulled out from under me..... argh.. and..

The cliffhanger ending #$&ing annoys the living crap outta me too....because i feel the same way i do as at the end of "Empire Strikes Back." I mean this as a compliment. what happened to marcus and his men? I want to believe Corvus somehow survived. I want a hot elf? girlfriend with her own eagle.

The most epic battle scenes in fantasy.

Reason #12527 I am pissed off is that Vox has to take his non-fungible, zero sum time and spend it saving Western Civilization instead of what I want him to spend his time on which is his epic fiction. There is a scene in LOTR when Gwaihair (who says he, Gwaihair, would carry Gandalf 'were you made of stone') "espies" Frodo and Sam (who think they are at the end of all things)...that moves me. Voxs fiction often makes me feel the samenway.

Reading the Arkhaven comic rekindled my desire to read both of Vox's selenoth books and Summa Elevetica. They stand up well. Bessarias story is particularly moving.

Vertigo comes before the fall

IP development? Does that stand for "Incoherent Pronouns" now?

Shame, Vertigo produced some quality material back in the 90s, but by the mid-2000s was almost entirely trash.

I learned more than I'd ever known about Roman legions from reading ATOB. This video on Roman legionnaires (from recruitment to battle) was fascinating, especially the info about slings (which play a crucial part in an upcoming ATOB battle scene): Readers will no doubt make their own comparisons with today's military as this YT-er (History Debunked) does:
